Reflection

The River at Chepstow (I think!)... or is it Ross on Wye? Perhaps someone may be able to help me.

Wow Graeme....this truly is serene...the boat gave you such a good scale to it all...petersmile
Graeme Hubbard: Thanks, Peter. I looked at the aerial map to find out where this taken, and the boat's still there!
Hi Graeme... I wish you'd posted this photo in a larger size... to see more detail... great shot...
Graeme Hubbard: Thanks, Jacquelyn. I'll see what can be done. I think most of my pictures are too blurry to go much larger!

You really have to stare at this one, Graeme, to make it all out. The reflections are wonderful.

After reading Jaquelyn's comment, I wondered if you knew how to change your template to the larger format that she's talking aboput? If not, please let me know and I'll walk you through it. I agree...this would look incredible larger.
Graeme Hubbard: Thank you, Ginnie. I wish I'd found a way to lose the grass bank in the foreground. Probably in too much of a hurry, as usual! I didn't know about a larger template, yes, please let me know.

More like Chepstow I think Graeme: I remember it being flatter at Ross. Anyway it's a fine study
Graeme Hubbard: Thanks, Chris. Looking at the map I've decided on Chepstow. Bridge Street over the Wye.
I can't think that this is Ross on Wye Graeme
Graeme Hubbard: I think you're right, Bill. I've looked at the air photo map and it's Chepstow.
Pretty good wherever it is, great reflections.
Graeme Hubbard: Thanks, Martin. I've decided on Chepstow.
A beautiful capture with wonderful reflections.
Graeme Hubbard: Thank you. Perfect lighting for it.

Superb, Graeme; a cracking shot showing a wonderful reflection. To nit pick, I would have moved a few feet to left, if possible, so that the reflection of the boat is not partially masked by the river bank.

I geotag my images now so that I can be sure of the location in later times (ie the following week!).
Graeme Hubbard: Thanks, Alan. You're right about trying to grt to the left. I remember trying to, mainly to lose the grass bank in right foreground. I was on a bridge and a bit restricted and would have lost some of the cliffs and the reflection.( not to mention being run over!) Still, can't have everything. If I was in any way organised and not idle, I'd tag too. Cheers.

Shutterchance has two templates, Graeme. The default, "original design," is the one you are using which was the only one they had when they first started 4-5 years ago. After several of us asked for a larger template, the administrators came up with the second one which you can find in your Preferences: choose "minimalist design" if you want the larger size. Hope that helps.
Graeme Hubbard: Thanks, Ginnie. I've tried it with today's post. What do you think?
It is a great image Graeme, those reflecxtions are magnificent. When you make the change Ginnie has told you about you might find your menu items have moved to along the top of the screen but it doesn't take long to get used to the changed layout.
Graeme Hubbard: Thanks, Brian. I'm glad you mentioned about the menu bar or I'd still be looking!
Great difference between the light and shade, good capture Graeme of an impressive scene.
Graeme Hubbard: Thanks, John. I was pleased with the lighting and relection.
Wonderful capture Graeme. I have to say it took me a while to get onto the other format but Ginnie is helping
Graeme Hubbard: Thanks, Janet. I didn't realise the other format was there. It does seem better.
Where ever it is, its a cracking reflection Graeme smile
Graeme Hubbard: I've decided it must have been Chepstow, Linda. Thanks.
A picture of mirrors..Well seen Graeme.
Graeme Hubbard: Thanks, Ron.
Oh my! A wonderful shot. Beside all that that been mentioned I like the colour layers and how it is almost aglow.
Graeme Hubbard: Lucky with the light, Mary. Thank you.
Hi Graeme... Now that you've changed the format I can really see stuff!!!! I've never used your old format so I learned something from Ginnie too. I thought you had just downloaded a smaller size photo to upload in SC. And... I like the grass bank in the picture too. It adds more shadow & texture to my viewing.
Graeme Hubbard: Sorry to have had you squinting over the mall format all these weeks, Jacquelyn. I can even see your point about the grass bank now! Thank you.
